We’ll call you later

chasing slow payers - phone techniquesImagine:
You have two invoices to pay.  Both are for exactly the same amount and overdue. You receive a reminder email from both creditors.  One’s a normal (yawn) reminder, but the other has the sentence
“We will call you later this week to see if there’s anything that you need.”
Now, who are YOU going to pay if you only have enough to pay ONE of them?

Think about it:
People don’t like to be called on the phone about overdue accounts. Don’t you agree?  So, use this to your advantage. “We will call you later” is simple, short, polite and perceived to be helpful but, most of all, it’ll get YOUR account paid more quickly than others, providing there are no other influencing factors in play.

About the Author:

Have you ever wondered why a client does business with you and then ignores your invoice like they had no intention of paying it in the first place or they treat you like their own personal line of credit, leaving YOU dangling, waiting months for their payment? Unfortunately this situation is all too common and can even be puzzling for the most experienced business owner. If you’ve ever had to handle outstanding accounts or you are just so over non-payers, then we can help. Real-world skills, solutions, tips & strategies to get more accounts paid on time, and, most importantly, how to maintain customer goodwill while keeping YOUR cash flow in the positive. You will find the blog posts helpful but to get real results, contact us by using any of the forms on this site, by email or by phone. I’ve been involved in the management of accounts for over 30 years, heard every excuse in the book, can spot a non-payer at 20 paces. Finance Companies in the 70s (systematic, tough), professional firms in the 80s (no systems, too gentle) and, since then, just about every other sort of business you can think of. I’ve written books on the topic, spoken all over the place about it and the blog in this website is my way of “giving back”. I hope you find it helpful.
